The Administrative Committee of the Hon’ble High Court had also
invited the representatives of the Bar Council in its meeting held on 08.10.2020
and had discussed in detail the difficulties being faced by the lawyers especially
the youngsters during this difficult phase of Covid-19 which has affected each
and everyone of our community. The Hon’ble Administrative Committee of the
High Court has very graciously accepted certain suggestions for redressal of the
difficulties of advocates and in this regard further communication dated
09.10.2020 has been issued by the Hon’ble High Court which ipso facto is
highly appreciable especially considering the present precarious situation.
In view of the above positive response shown by Lordships for mitigating
the difficulties of the legal fraternity the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana,

mode for acceptance of demands and as such the same is withdrawn.
The Bar council however genuinely hopes and requests that the
difficulties of lawyers which may be brought to the notice of Hon’ble Judges
would meet favorable considerations.
